Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
"Hey Jim! You've got Steve Shaw on your side now. What more could you ask?"
That's all right Bryan - you've got yourself
"Sides" is about packs, not intelligent arguments
"be honest Jim - you push just as much as you get shoved."
And you be honest Al - you are one of the few who have graciously accepted my offer and have totally failed to comment on any of the contents, indicating exactly the disinterest in folk music that I am referring to
Ten years ago I would have been mortified to find myself raising my head above the parapet as I have here
I have begun to realise that, if the music I am arguing for to survive you need to give as good as you get
Addres you remarks on nastiness to all concerned if you are genuine in your co=ncerns
Then, apart from the mudslinging, go and look at the level of openly expressed hate that is taking place here - none from me.
How many of you people have addressed my point about folk music being the voice of ordinary people ?
I'll tell you how many - not one of you - not even to deny it.
For me, it's not just enjoying the songs, which I do immensely - it's about what those songs represent for us as human beings
